Just post this on pornhub and call it free to watch already!
While the overall story may look thin, Showgirls shows that is an intense, emotional and entertaining film. All the credit goes to Elizabeth Berkley's blowsy and most importantly ''very cute" performance. Thumbs Up ÃÂ°'Ã,?ÃÂ°Ã,? 1/4 Delivers the Goods.
A lot of people complain that Showgirls is over the top, trashy, and ridiculous. That is EXACTLY what Vegas is! This film perfectly captures the essence of what Las Vegas is without sugar coating it. The environment that this film portrays could only exist in Las Vegas. On the surface LV seems like a glamourous place, but on the inside its a very gritty and sleazy place. The visuals in this film only add to the perfect environment that Verhoeven has created. There are some truly masterful shots of the city in the backdrop throughout the entire film.
I personally love all the performances. Kyle MacLachlan plays the ultimate slime ball. Elizabeth Berkley plays a character that is just trying to make it in this world and she will do whatever it takes to get there. Gina Gershon plays the perfect villainous goddess. Both of these ladies are so fierce and I was captivated by both of them. Everyone in this film over-acts, but that's the point!
Showgirls is a movie I will defend until the day I die. This film is a look at the America's obsession with money, power, and fame and how the three are intertwined in the downfall of our culture. Money, power, and fame changes people and usually for the worse. This film is a perfect exploitation and satire of America. This film is not so bad its good. Showgirls is genuinely a great film. I also have to give a ton of credit to Joe Eszterhas, the writer. This film's script is perfect. Do we really think the master of satire, Paul Verhoeven didn't know what he was doing with this film?
Loved it in 1995, still like it today!
